Inspired from the books of the renowned Chinese writer Jiang Nan, Revelation Online is a breathtakingly-beautiful fantasy MMORPG with a strong oriental theme, a riveting storyline, as well as a varied and fun gameplay. In this game, you play as a character who has the powers and potential to become one of the Guardians of the world, the people who are tasked to aid the last Wardens in their fight against the corrupting influences and devastation brought on by demonic beasts.
To begin playing, you’ll first need to create a character. Revelation Online offers 6 different character classes for you to choose from ranging from the damage-dealing classes (Blademaster, Swordmage and Gunslinger) to the support classes (Occultist and Spirit Shaper). If you’d rather play a tankier character, the Vanguard might be a more suitable choice. Each character can be customized and the options provided are pretty extensive and in-depth. Once you’re done, you’ll be immersed headlong into the game proper.
Similar to most MMORPGs, there are several types of quests available in Revelation Online and available and the quests themselves are varied enough to be engaging. In fact, even running to and fro between quest givers is interesting mainly due to the movements you can do in the game - you can glide, sprint, and eventually, fly, in addition to being able to simply ride your mount. The game also has auto-pathfinding which is completely optional.
Furthermore, Revelation Online feature a fluid action-based combat where timely dodges are as important as the damage you deal. Granted that the actions are unrealistic at best, but the actions and animations are oh so awesome! There’s even a Target Lock feature so you won’t lose sight of your main target.
Besides quests, there are also tons of raiding and instance running (both solo and in a group) that you can do as well as PvP arenas and the massive 20-vs-20 battlefields. As compared to its PvE though, it’s obvious that the game places more emphasis on fighting bosses co-operatively rather than PvP.
Exploration is another crucial aspect in Revelation Online mainly because of the beautiful game world constructed solely for the players’ pleasure. Not to mention, sometimes you may even come across chests containing some random reward as well as plants, minerals and trees that you can forage for crafting materials.
Consisting of 6 different types with 2 of which considered as “side professions”, crafting makes up maybe around half of the economy in Revelation Online since the items you create can then be sold via your own player stalls, and through the auction or mobile auction.
To advance in the game, you’ll need to develop your character mainly by leveling up, but also by investing points in your stats and skills. There a ton of equipment that you can upgrade, as well as a pet that’s basically there to help you make sense of the world of Nuanor.
Revelation Online places substantial focus on its social aspect, by providing indispensable perks for players in a guild. There’s even a mentoring system for high-level players to aid lower ones, and apparently, there’s an Intimacy feature which hints at possible romancing options and weddings in the game.
Being a freemium MMORPG, the game has an in-game shop selling a variety of items for real money too. Thankfully, most of them are convenience items and cosmetics.
With its soft light and bright colors, the graphics in Revelation Online look absolutely breathtaking... even at a low resolution. Players may also enjoy the game’s many amazing cut scenes. The game also sounds as brilliant as it looks. That said, the voice acting in the game is still in Chinese, but luckily, there are English subtitles for you to read instead.
In addition to its impressive graphics and sound, Revelation Online offers a fun action-based gameplay, be it during questing, raiding or PvPing, coupled with a storyline that’s rich and engrossing. Granted that it is by no means a revolutionary game, Revelation Online is designed well enough to keep MMO players coming back for more... and that’s what matter the most.
